The UK Register of Civil Aircraft contains specific information on over 18,000 aircraft registered in the United Kingdom. The Aircraft Registration Section at the CAA administers the system and continuously updates information on registered aircraft that change registration details during the year.

G-INFO on CD is a comprehensive single source database of the UK Register. G-INFO on CD is produced monthly and various one-off or subscription services are available.

G-INFO replicates information held against each aircraft on the UK Register of Civil Aircraft including all current registered ownership and technical details for each aircraft registered in the UK.

Information can be retrieved by making searches on individual fields such as registration mark, aircraft type or serial number, and users are able to make use of sophisticated filter options for more precise and defined searches.

The user is able to download data into other applications such as word processors, spreadsheets or other databases. This allows the user to produce their own customised reports, mail-outs and survey information.

G-INFO on CD conditions of sale

Please note that the information contained in this version of the Database is believed to be correct as at the date of compilation. The UK Register of Civil Aircraft ("the Register") currently holds details of over 21,000 aircraft, and on an annual basis there are changes of registered information to approximately 35% of the total. Therefore there may have been changes to the Register since completion of the Database compilation. A new version of G-INFO is produced monthly, the current subscription fees for which are as shown on the order form. If you wish to up-grade your purchase to a subscription or the Full Version your initial fee will be deducted from the additional cost providing you forward the balance within one month of of your original order.

Whilst reasonable care is taken in compiling the Database, the CAA does not warrant the data in it to be free of error or omission or that changes to the Register will not have been made since completion of the compilation [or that the program that runs the Database will be compatible with your computer and software.] . Accordingly any use that you make of the Database is at your own risk and does not obviate the need to make any necessary enquiries or searches. Except where you are a consumer, in which case your statutory rights are not affected, the CAA does not accept any liability for financial loss that you incur by relying on the Database.

Please note that the format in which the data is supplied may be subject to change in the future.

Copyright and Database right in the Database (and the format of the data) whether on CD or other media, are vested in the CAA and it shall not be copied or distributed, sold or hired out or otherwise dealt with, without the written consent of the CAA. All rights reserved.

The Database is authorised for use on a single PC only. If you intend to use the Database on more than one PC, or to network the data , please contact the Aircraft Registration Section in order to obtain the appropriate licences.
